Hell’s Fire Chips. The name is a little crazy,  but if you’re a hot sauce fan you will feel the fire after eating these. Blue cheese and hot sauce is sprinkled into your favorite chips for the easiest snack ever.

I was first turned on to this dish years ago when my husband and I were dating. He took me to Scottsdale Arizona for the weekend where we ate at his favorite restaurant, well, it’s actually a bar that serves food, called AZ88.
There are just 3 ingredients to Hell’s Fire Chips, baked chips, blue cheese and hot sauce. AZ88 uses Arizona Gunslinger Sauce (now that’s a great name) but that is not available to me here, so I substituted Franks Hot Sauce and it tastes just as good. Since the restaurant make their own chips and they are warm fresh out of the fryer, the cheese starts to melt a little which I like.

The reason that I like to use baked chips is you just get a better crunch and there’s a lot less grease and salt. You don’t need either of those with the richness and saltiness of the blue cheese.

A little fact: The restaurant used to call this appetizer Hell’s Fire Fries. Where that has a good ring to it, I can see how that would be miss-leading to the customers thinking that they were getting fries instead of chips. Of course, if this dish was in England, they would be called Hell’s Fire Crisps.
